Karma’s a bitch

When I woke up this morning, it was raining. I pulled up accuweather on my phone to see how bad it really was. “Clear” was the report. Then I pulled up the radar.


Serious tech fail.

I don’t run in thunderstorms. It’s just not worth it. I went to bed and planned to run later. BOB isn’t really an option today; no way Sophie will sit for an eight mile run.

We spent the morning washing dishes. We ate lunch. I sat down on the floor with my laptop in an attempt to get some work done. Sometime between then and now I totally fucked up my back. Maybe when I got up off the floor? I can’t even tell you.

All I know is that I can’t bend over without excruciating pain on the left side of my body. And if I do manage to bend? I can’t stand up.

This has never happened before to me.

I can only guess this is karma cracking me in the back with a baseball bat after I teased Scott a little about hurting his back while picking raspberries in the yard. “It sucks getting old,” I said.

It sucks. It sucks, indeed.

My current position is the living room floor with an ice pack on my back, surrounded by various carby snacks and his lovely view of the ceiling:


If ever there was a time I could will Sophie to nap on command, it’s now.

Not sure if I can run tonight or my long run tomorrow. It’s that bad. Crap.

Runner, Eater, Mother, Tweeter

Amy, July 2013

I'm a thirty-something suburbanite turned ruralite living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Wife, mom of two, eater of all things delicious, and a runner. This is where I blather on about running and health. Baby Number Three will be here in November (so yes, I'm a little crazy), and I'm running through my pregnancy for as long as my body's willing and able. There's also more of me at amyupnorth.com. Read more here.


What a fun way to close out the hockey season in the Copper Country. More pictures by Jay.

I’m an Ambassador!
